    I’m curious about the origin of the symbol in the top center panel. It looks like Mr. Spocks “live long & prosper” hand sign.

    The position of the hands and fingers used when the priests recited the blessing – “The Lord bless you and keep you. the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you…” Leonard Nimoy supposedly introduced it to the Spock character, having seen it many times in his Jewish upbringing (Nimoy’s upbringing, not Spock’s).
